icon DROD series review on kolenka.su (russian) (+2)  
So I just found this via my mysterious ways of finding stuff on the internet

http://kolenka.su/blog/reviews/smertelno-opasnye-komnaty-smerti.html

I really don't have time to translate any of it but I can tell you it's a positive review. Like, really positive. Just use google translate, it'll also probably be really hilarious that way.

Oh and by the way, see the gifs in the review? They're from the wiki. Yeah, so nice and smooooooth. Good thing I remade skell's terrible quality gifs before someone used them elsewhere on the internet, am I right?

Deadly Rooms of Death Hazardous!
The automatic translation kind of works, and is great.

From that URL, I see they call it "Deathly-dangerous Rooms of Death". That makes sense in Russian. Can't wait to read the review!

Edit: yes, that is a beautiful and glowing review! Big thanks to the author! :thumbsup

My gifs were awesome! Not even an elementary gratitude, what is becoming of the kids/people/whatnots these days :no

Oh well, glad the review is good :). Too bad I don't know Russian.

Hi! I'm the author of this review. Never expected it to be mentioned here. I really appreciate your attention.

I think it's easier to write a new review in english than to translate this one. Anyway, it really is hilarious to read it through the google translate. The last paragraph is a pure madness ^_^

This is a translation I made up myself. In russian localisations the title never got translated. I ended up at this one because it makes a good abbreviation in russian.

Fixed that. Totally forgot about it in the heat of finishing the review (all those shenanigans with HTML markup, duh).
Btw, the last gif was a nightmare it had way too many frames and got corrupted whatever I tried. In the end I had to convert it (dropping every second frame) to use in the review.
No idea on how you wizards managed to make it load correctly on the wikia.

Really? I didn't have any problems with it, I just uploaded it and it worked. Is this really something that can happen just because a gif has too many frames? Because other than that, it's made in exactly the same way as all the other gifs on the wiki. And I often see gifs that are, like, thousands of frames but they look just fine to me.

And by corrupted, do you mean something like this:


This seems to happen to some gifs when they are resized, maybe that's the issue? On the review page all the gifs look resized to me, except the last one.

Yes, this is the way it looked like. I suspected resizing to be the issue, but this never happened to other five gifs and changing resolution didn't fix it for the last one (I tried different versions of the file from the wiki too). Maybe it's the site engine doing something shady or just me being all thumbs with html. Well, anyway, my workaround somehow solved the problem, so there's no need to worry about it.
